English Language Learner Teacher

The English Language Learner (ELL) Teacher reports to the Director of Student Support and works with English Language Learners (ELLs) or those students for whom English is not their primary language. The ELL teachers work with ELLs to help them acquire fluency in English, both spoken and in the written word.

Background Two Rivers Public Charter School serves a diverse group of over 970 students in preschool through eighth grade. Staff at Two Rivers create an exciting educational environment in which students and staff become a community of learners on a journey of discovery. Two Rivers uses Expeditionary Learning, an educational model that emphasizes interactive, hands-on, project-based learning. The school focuses on the whole child, recognizing the importance of character education and social-emotional needs of children while helping them achieve academic excellence. 

The Two Rivers staff share a strong belief that all children can learn and be high achievers. The curriculum at Two Rivers is rigorous, standards-based, and provides opportunities for students to excel in all areas. An integrated arts program and a content-based Spanish program augment the school’s demanding academic program. These elements come together through learning expeditions that allow students to incorporate and apply their classroom learning through real-world experiences.
